Endeavours to fight the scourge of gangsterism and crimes associated with gangs are proving to be successful. Last night, members of the Provincial Reaction Team conducted search operations in Mitchells Plain upon receiving information from the public. The first residence in their sights was situated in Wemmershoek Street Tafelsig where a 40-year-old man was arrested for being in possession of dagga, mandrax and 51 rounds of ammunition.

From there, the Team proceeded to Buffalo Street Tafelsig where a 38-year-old man was arrested for being in possession of an assortment of drugs comprising woonga and tik. A total cash amount of R10 000, believed to be the proceeds of drug trafficking was also confiscated. A Toyota Hilux LDV stolen in Nyanga earlier this month was also recovered and seized.

Both suspects are due to make court appearances tomorrow in Mitchells Plain.
